Squeaking Noises

I have noticed squeaking noises intermittently when I go from a stopped position to a slow roll. It sounds like the squeaking noises from braking, but I am not braking. I am not turning, just going straight. I dont get it all the time, but frequently enough to bother me. Anyone have any advice or know what this is?

One of the three:

Brake pads are sticking
Hand brake shoes not disengaging properly
Small stones stuck between brake discs and backing plate

Take it to the dealership if you are not able to investigate any of the above 3 yourself.

I get it from braking at slow turns. Most noticeable when I'm slowly driving onto my driveway (not a steep slope). Any idea what part of the brake system is causing this?

Appreciate the help. Sorry to thread jack man! Its been bugging me.

Same thing happened first day my cuzin got he's BMW M3 E92 year 2012 it's sound like a tin can sound we looked on bimmerpost to try to fined something they said it may be the break spring or a rock in it or something. We took it to the dealer they said there were rocks in it. But for other People it was there break spring. Don't worry it's a know problem to it to the dealer u got it from they will fix it don't worry.

had this problem last month. apparently it was from corrosion on the hand brake, thus causing some friction with the rotor.
they fixed it in 10 minutes so it couldn't be that complex.
